Happy Tuesday! Time to share a fun story from your past. Have you ever written or received a love letter and what became of that person?

Yes and yes... tongue I was a single mom and had begun to date this gentleman whom I knew. Before we started dating he had planned a vacation during the holidays to see his parents and couldn't cancel. He didn't want to leave me and I didn't want him to leave but both of us knew he had to go. So, I loaded up on some postcards to send to him at his parents address. What I didn't know was that he had done the same thing. We had promised to write but I wasn't sure he was the kind who would actually put pen to paper and mail it off.

Anyway, I mailed the postcards in envelopes since his parents didn't know about me yet and they just thought I was forwarding his mail to him. eyes wink Well, one day I hurried to the mailbox to see if I had anything and sure enough there was the cutest Garfield card with a sweet note on it. What was even funnier was it was the exact same postcard I had sent to him the day before and they had crossed in the mail! shocked smilewinkgrin

And what happened is...we've been married over 16 years now and I love him with everything I have. And I still have those postcards we sent each other. So keep those love letter and notes flying even if you've been married for many years. And if you don't have a 'special' someone in your life you can tell a friend, grandchild, or cousin that you love them, just maybe not quite like you would a sweetheart...lol It keeps your heart young and a smile on everyone's face!

And what's your love letter story?

I don't know if this counts but:

about a dozen years ago when I decided to try dating again after my divorce I placed a singles ad online in a few of the free personals that were around. My current wife, who was not looking for anyone, was trying to find someone for her sister when she came upon my ad and decided to respond to it herself and did not even tell her sister about the ad.

In the meantime her sister had found someone on her own but had not yet told sister and decided to do some hunting to try to find my wife a boyfriend. If you guessed that my SIL replied to my ad too you guessed right.

   Dear Chutz,
     Yes! Many! One story in paticular warms my heart to no end when I think about it......    I was dating a young man who lived in a neighboring town, who was going to college. Oh, he was a hadsome devil! I would day dream about him every time I wasnt caught up in a task..and sometimes even when I was! Oh, I was so smitten. But, he lived a good hours drive me. So, we had to chatt online alot....
     One night I got brave and began telling him how much I was falling in love with him. Oh, I was embarrased but if I didnt tell him how much he ment to me I felt as if I would burst!!! So, there I am pouring my heart out to him, and he isnt saying anything. He isnt moving an inch on his webcam either. I'm getting nervous, rambling on and on and he isnt saying a peep. I was discouraged and had worried that perhaps I should have kept my feelings to myself..... after quite some time of no response, I went to check my email as I had gotten a little "tone alert" and there was a mail box full of responses to everything I had said. The most loving, caring, heartfelt mirror of what I was professing to him! As it turns out, his "chat programm" had "errored and froze".  blush  He became so frustraited that he was unable to make his chat programm respond, and that I was oblivious to what was going on... his last email I read said "Im comming to you my LOVE!".
      Here we are 8yrs later and he still makes my heart full and complete! I love him oh so very much and we still profess our love to one another in the most creative, unique ways possible.
        .......Maybe one day I will tell you all about the story of his old supervisor ~ stack of a full years worth of "adult" emails ~ And the polite, yet firm command to not read those emails at work because of a new "screen shot programm" they had implemented to make sure workers stayed on task blush  No he wasnt fired, just a verbal warning from a very embarrassed, red faced, supervisor.

My love letters are stashed away in a large shoe box in the back of a closet. My husband and I met via love letters. I was introduced through my sister's husband and we started to write "snail mail" back in the day.  It's interesting to pull these letters out and read them in order of dates. We finally met some months later on a blind date. I never had seen him.  I was sooo scared.  We lived 10 hours away from each other and ended up getting engaged 4 months later. Kinda quick! But, I felt I knew him so well because of letters. My children laugh really hard when we read them.  The romantic flirting through words. This doesn't happen to often today thaks to technology.  To this day we still, after being married 23 years, communicate better by letter:)
